Passing via Sa Calobra
An absolutely stunning 12km piece of road that runs over the mountains to the north of Mallorca and down to the coastal town of Sa Calobra. The road is a collection of tight hairpins and switch backs, unbelievable scenery. Go early morning to avoid other vehicles, and don't hire anything that won't corner
Starting from the roundabout as you leave the main road, the route does not look too promising, but youre soon climbing up a series of hairpins to the top of a hill. You go down the other side with superb coastal views until you reach a section of uninspiring straight road that thankfully does not last long before you climb once again up the cliffs of the cape heading towards the cafe underneath the lighthouse at the end where you have views across the mediterranean to Menorca on a clear day.
At the beginning of the route (actually the top of the 682m mountain), there is a spectacular corner that takes you around 270 degrees and back under the road that you have just ridden down.
Halfway down there is a junction - stay on the main road to the right for the ride down to sa Calobra where there are resting facilities, or take the turning to the left to climb over another hill and down to a small, deserted cove.
